Dear FSN Forum members,

following my earlier post regarding the AERI EL SHAMS project in Egypt "Agricultural Exports and Rural Incomes - Enhanced Livelihoods from Smallholder Horticultural Activities Managed Sustainably", I found a few key documents in my files from our literature review that will provide more details.
The Chief of Party was Tom Herlehey -- he prepared a summary "Lessons Learned" (linked) presentation that did a good job of covering the basics.
Burt Swanson wrote an article (linked) about the project from the extension education angle for a conference held in 2004.
